Blonde Moment

So, I've been looking at the book Knit So Fine for about a year, now - lusting over the Traveling Stitch Legwarmers pattern, and dreaming of ways to knit them into socks. I just couldn't bring myself to spring for the whole book for one pattern... and then the other day I was looking through my old interweave knits mags, and found the pattern in one of them. I've had it the whole time.

Color Wheel Quilt

My phone doesn't take the greatest photos, but even a crappy photo makes my point... I love this quilt pattern! It's from Last Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts and it's quicker than you'd think. It's also quite inexpensive to make, if you've already got a rainbow of fabric stashed.
This isn't the only thing I've been spending my time on lately... and it's one of the first projects in my attempt at a mostly handmade Christmas this year.
